30 Beauty Questions Tag

It’s been a while since I last did a tag but from what I remember, they’re fun and interactive! I saw Stella’s post and enjoyed it so much that I wanted to take part too. 🙂 I have told you a bit about myself in Q&As but I am sure that there are some beauty-related gaps that haven’t been filled. Well, you know what they say – if you don’t ask, you don’t tell! 😝 Let’s Start: Do you remember your first makeup item? I’m certain that it was a mascara by Rimmel. I doubt that they sell it anymore since it was so long ago! At the time, my eldest brother’s girlfriend wore this mascara but I cannot remember if she gifted one to me or if I just went ahead and bought my own. I do remember however, that she bought other makeup for me. 🙂 Describe your perfect mascara. It has to hold the curl! Otherwise, it is a deal-breaker for me I’m afraid. I like a mascara that lifts my lashes and gives …

Coffee Break: Get To Know Me More

Today I thought I’d do a different post as it’s truly been a while since I sat down and chatted to you all about…well, me. I’ve been posting a lot about beauty and skincare lately and whilst that’s very close to my heart, I want to start chatting about the more important things in life such as self-care, and in the broader spectrum of things, some political issues. I think that’ll be my next instalment for the blog in the new year, but for now, please grab a coffee break with me. 🙂 These are just some facts about me illustrated by some photos I’ve taken myself… I won’t be numbering anything but rather, just let my mind do its thing. Feel free to join in and make your own posts/comments? This isn’t dissimilar to the ‘100 Facts About Me’ tag etc. but there is less restraint I suppose. If you couldn’t tell, I love taking pictures of coffee when I’m at a coffee house – even if it’s just a Starbucks or Costa. Even …

Q&A | Liebster Award and Nominations!

Always keeping it easy on Sundays! This again, is very long due but I’m here. I posted a Q&A yesterday too so if you haven’t already done so, read it here. I was nominated by the wonderful Emma of Everything EmmZeeBee (see her post here) a few months ago. She’s a new blogger of this year and just so happens to be a UK blogger like me so be sure to check her out! Thank you Emma for the nomination and wish you all the best with your blog which I think is going very smoothly! 🙂 Here are the questions from Emma that I have to answer: What is your dream holiday destination? There are so many places I want to visit but if I have to only pick one then I’d have to say Tokyo, Japan. I’m always so fascinated with people’s travel diaries and vlogs whenever they travel to Japan. The culture and colours really come across and there is no where else in the world like so! I have no plans yet to go to …

Get To Know Me Q&A | The Versatile Blogger Award

It’s unusual but I decided to post this Saturday! What have you got planned this weekend? This post is actually very, very long due. I was nominated by the wonderful Capili (author of Artistbybeauty). I have never been nominated for a blogger award before so this feels extra special. I was also nominated for another award by Capili, but today we are just focusing on the first – The Versatile Blogger Award. I am very excited and thankful to receive this award so thank you Capili. 🙂 I realise that I share a lot of things that I love, like and dislike on this blog but not a whole lot about myself. However, there will be an upcoming Q&A/tag because it seems that I like to play catch-up some wonderful blogger friends have nominated me and it’s time to answer the questions! Seven Things About Me: I have two older brothers – I’m the youngest. Overall, in my family tree, this appears to be a running pattern (having two boys and then a girl) so naturally, I have …

Get To Know Me: A to Z Tag

Happy Sunday everyone! I thought for a change I’d do a Get To Know Me type post because I realise all this time that I’ve been blogging, I’ve never done one. And that’s actually a bit sad because I’d like you to get to know me a bit better. 🙂 Who knows, I might even surprise myself too! I saw the Get To Know Me: A to Z Tag on a blog that I have recently discovered: Linda Talks Beauty and knew straight away that I had to do this tag. Go check her blog out because it’s visually appealing and well-written. The A to Z Tag Age: People always get my age wrong, but I won’t complain. Looking young has its merits. Maybe 3 weeks ago, someone guessed my age as being 16 (?!!) After confessing no, he then said, ‘Good skin, eh?’. I also remember being IDed before for buying razor blades at the drugstore this year. Brothers: I have two older brothers and no sisters! In my extended family, most of my cousins are boys too. So …
